Two local stretches of highway are getting a speed limit increase.

Highway 400 from MacTier to Nobel and Highway 11 from Emsdale to South River will see their speed limits increase to 110 kilometres per hour (km/h). 

Officials say the limits are being increased “on a trial basis” and could potentially be reverted. 

According to the Ministry of Transportation, pilot projects have shown that highways with 110 km/h speed limits have similar speeds and collision trends to highways that remain at 100 km/h.

Speed limits have also been increased on sections of Highways 401, 402, 404, and 417, permanently. 

The changes take effect April 22.
